EVGA x99 Micro - Help find me a wifi for the M.2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey Boys and Girls,

I was wondering if anyone with the EVGA x99 Micro has found a compatible wifi card for the M.2 slot. Those of you who own this MB probably know by now this slot isn't really designed for an SSD.

Anyway, I'm really after a proven and compatible WiFi/Bluetooth combo if any has used one. EVGA forums are a ghost town.

Alternatively, second best, if anyone wants to chime in if they know of a Dongle that has both Wifi/Bluetooth 4.0 combined ..

Thanks in advance

Cheers Fellas!

I have been looking at that one. To my disbelief I haven't found anyone that's actually using it though. I'd hate to get it and have a useless piece of tech aging without being used.
My guess is it would work but I'm a little concerned about compatibility.

Those links... where does one mount those antenna's in the case?

I found a lot of people using it maybe mostly in laptops/notebooks tough, they even wrote some reviews about it. But it's not in English maybe you can translate it, overall the reviews are good.
http://tweakers.net/productreview/93837/intel-dual-band-wireless-ac-7260-plus-bluetooth.html Don't know if anyone is using the M.2 interface card version or all are using the PCIe Half Mini Card. Just click on reviews: http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/340462/intel-dual-band-wireless-ac-7260-plus-bluetooth/reviews/
